  3. General FML moments

    March Break is ending for me, while in America, they're just starting it next week. I've also heard that they get two weeks, while it was only a week for us. Why is it that we get shorter summer vacations and shorter spring breaks? They go by so fast. Back to school I go...
  4. The Random Thoughts Thread

    I'm already on my last day of March Break. I love March Break except for one thing: It goes by too quickly!
  5. Here is a photo of 7918 (and 9303 behind). The photo was taken by Bob Hussey. The interesting thing is that 9303 is behind it, but it still had turn signal lights above the headlights. They got removed later on, while the rest of the 1993 NovaBus Classics kept them.
  6. The Random Thoughts Thread

    The good thing is that the school buses get cancelled and you don't have to go to school! Yes please. The downside is that if you're in high school, exams get delayed by a day because of the snow. The last exam will end up the day before the new semester unless you have a last period class that doesn't require an exam. You'll go for your exam, then the first day of the new semester is the next day.
  7. The Random Thoughts Thread

    Why are there more video clips of OC Transpo Fishbowls than there are for the 1991-1992 Orion Vs? It would have been nice to see a video of an Orion V taking off...
  8. Transit Related Dreams

    I had another dream last night. This time, it was me finding an OC Transpo LFS still in the KFC paint. This was supposedly after they all retired. This took place at night too. The bus was on the 95, and I got on it just to get a ride. I then got off the bus and started taking another one to go home, which was a 1992 D40. That's where the dream ends. I remember thinking that the first bus was just... okay. It didn't excite me. That's the end of the dream
  9. What Are You Reading Right Now?

    I'm sure that it'll be interesting. I simply don't like any Shakespeare plays because of the kind of English that is used. The stories aren't interesting.
  10. What Are You Reading Right Now?

    I'm currently reading Twelfth Night, a Shakespeare play. I'm only reading it because of a school assignment. I dislike this book. It's so boring, and I don't even like reading in the first place, unless it's something that genuinely interests me.
  11. Big No No'es

    Yet another thing that I dislike. Our D40 maple leaf livery. Looked like someone was too lazy to paint it correctly. Only one of the D40s got a proper livery. Our Orion V maple leaf livery was one of the best though. Here's the newer D40 livery that wasn't proper: Here's what the D40 maple leaf livery is supposed to look like: Photos by Nick Hauser.
  12. Oldest bus in each city

    STO's oldest bus is 7901, a 1979 GM New Look. Still active, and will be for as long as possible.
  13. Misc. OC Transpo & STO Questions & Discussion

    There's one question that confuses me: Were 9110-9119 originally brought with the intention of using them for Gray Line service, or did OC just send them to Gray Line a few years later? I know OC got them back in the late 1990s.

    4299 was on the 14 St. Laurent at 15:30. 4223 was on the 86B Baseline at around 15:20.
  15. Whats up with the board

    I've noticed that it also happens in the mobile version. I've asked an admin about it, and he said that he tried to fix as many photos as possible, but there was too many. He also said that it was some kind of glitch. It's very annoying if you use the mobile version especially.
